, telling his russian counterpart over the phone to pull back the troops. secretary of state john kerry flies to ukraine tomorrow. after the meeting today with the president of moldova, another former soviet republic whose security may depend on the result in ukraine. on sunday, kerry was quite strident in his condemnation of russia. >> this is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. it's really 19th-century behavior in the 21st century. >> financial markets today appear to be exacting their own revenge on russia, and investors as a whole. u.s. markets are down triple digits in midday trading. while the main russian exchange lost about 11% of its value and the russian ruble hit an all-time low against the dollar. still, the question remains, how should the u.s. respond to this crisis, which began after the ouster of ukraine's pro-russia regime last month? the answer among some hawks is, naturally, first blame president obama. the "washington post" editorial section wrote today, "president obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the
